We all want to spend our time wisely during the last weeks of the 2020 Election Campaign! So, what actions will do the most to make our government more BLUE?
One thing you can do is spend your time with voters who have ballots.
Here are two actions you can take:
Ballot chasing: This work is calling or texting people who have mail-in ballots but have not yet returned them. It is a friendly reminder call. Activists worked for a whole year to persuade Democrats to register to vote by mail. All that effort will have been wasted if the voter forgets to return it. With effort, we should be able to get nearly 100% of these ballots into the box.
Ballot curing or fixing: This work is calling or texting people who have already voted BUT they made a mistake on their ballot and it will not be counted. The ballot is in the box! But, it is flawed. Most states give the voter an opportunity to correct their ballot so that it can be counted. During the 2020 Primary Elections, more than 550,000 ballots were rejected! We can’t let this happen in November!
